New York Giants starting QB Eli Manning says he’s comfortable with his current contract situation with the Giants even though the team is expected to let him play out his contract.
In an interview with the North Jersey Record, Manning said he isn’t “getting caught up” in his contract situation and is going to continue applying himself to his craft.
“I’m comfortable. I’ve got a job to do and that’s to play football. That’s my only concern,” Manning said. “I’ve never got too caught up with contract stuff. Way I look at it, I have one more year and I’m gonna play that year and go from there.”
Manning is one of only three active NFL QBs with multiple Super Bowl wins – the others being New England Patriots QB Tom Brady and Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger, both of whom have received new contracts in the last few years. He led the Giants to wins over Brady’s Patriots in Super Bowls XLII and XLVI. He is also the Giants’ all-time leading passer in both single-season and career marks.
The Giants finished the 2014 season with a 6-10 record, their worst since 2004, and are coming off two straight losing seasons for the first time in head coach Tom Coughlin’s career with the Giants.
Last month it was revealed that the Giants intend to let the 34-year-old Manning play out his contract and will not re-sign him before then.
